He didn’t give a hoot!
An upstate New York high school soccer coach has come under fire for taking his team to Hooters following their first loss of the season.
Blake White decided to bring the Lake George boys soccer team to the restaurant chain — known for waitresses in short-shorts and tight tops — after they got beat Nov. 2 in the championship sectional game, the Times-Union reported Friday.
Lake George Central School District Superintendent Lynne Rutnik said of the trip: “It’s been taken seriously and we addressed it.”
“As a female superintendent, I took this very seriously and addressed it immediately with the students and the individual,” she said, without elaborating.
Tricia Biles, president of the school board, said, “Corrective action is being taken,” also without elaborating.
The team was summoned to a mandatory meeting Nov. 12 and were told the outing “was not in line with our athletic program and school community values,” the paper said.
The meeting was also attended by White, Athletic Director Kyle Manny, and the high school’s principal Fran Cocozza.
It’s unclear what other action was taken and if White will continue to coach. He’s also been an elementary school teacher in the district for more than 30 years.
